Junkin Finds...

I am late to the party, the Junkin Finds Friday that Linda at A La Carte hosts each week. One of these weeks I may be on time! Thanks for hosting, Linda.

I stopped into TJMaxx yesterday and found 4 really pretty dinner plates on sale. I had looked at them awhile back but couldn't justify paying $5 each when the thrift store was full of plates begging to be bought for a tenth of the price, so I passed them up. There were just 4 of them at $1 each, so I snatched them up. They are a dark brown, almost black with reds, oranges, yellows and greens. I am sure you will see them in a future tablescape.


I also stopped at Goodwill and found a few things, but they will have to wait until next week...

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog, it is appreciated.

I like you blues at your tablescape post, very pretty.
I lived in Overland Park, KS back in the early 50's. Used to be a nice root beer stand there. Then we moved away to the NE. I remember a tornado came down our street, didn't hit our house, we were lucky. Mel's Cabin visited you.

That's a great buy and thy will look great on a table. Your tablescape is also very pretty!

Audra said...

Oooh...what a find! I love it when TJ Maxx, Ross or Marshall's has serious mark down on dishes.

I have become inspired to set the table even if it's just me and the Teenager for lunch or dinner. He has noticed the difference and we find that we interact more over the meal and enjoy the tablescape.

I have you to thank for that...so keep on inspiring us!

Hugs!
